Bastard Masters by Grant Harbison

From the European lands they sought to explore
Wreaking havoc on distant shores
Through our lands they plundered and ravaged
With patronising effrontery they called us savage
They fed us their religion and forced us to take heed
But in the name of their god they salivated from greed
For the alabaster master we toiled and slaved
Put in our place if we protested or misbehaved
This is what they called civilisation
Chastening the natives with no deliberation
